Takata Airbag Recall Update

Posted by Gabrielle Bobinsky on Aug 19, 2015 4:56:29 PM

Is your car part of the recent Takata airbag recall ? If so, you should know that getting your airbag replaced may not take as long as first expected. We recently spoke with
a client who lives in upper Wisconsin who said she was able to get her airbag replaced last month! Usually, it takes time to produce and ship replacement parts throughout the country. Some experts initially stated that it could take up to two years to replace the faulty airbags on 34 million vehicles, but the good news it that replacement airbags seem to be available sooner than expected. If you have received a recall notice, it's important to call you local dealership and make arrangements to have your car's airbag(s) replaced. If you're not sure that your vehicle is part of the recall, you can check your Vehicle Identification Number on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website here.

Largest Safety Recall in U.S. History! - Takata Airbag Recall

Posted by Anthony Larsen on May 22, 2015 2:59:00 PM

A breaking story about the largest safety recall of any consumer product in U.S. history is still unfolding, and automakers are scrambling to come up with an accurate assessment of just how many vehicles are currently being driven with defective airbags that are potentially life threatening. Here at Fleet Services, our clients' safety and peace-of-mind is our #1 priority, so we are going to closely monitor the Takata safety recall, and provide a weekly update as new information comes available. As automakers and government agencies prescribe recommended actions for drivers of vehicles that are included in the recall, we will pass this information along to our clients and visitors of our blog site. 

Earlier this week, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, began to coordinate the process for the Takata airbag recall. The recall is due to defective air bag inflators, which may injur drivers when air bags are deployed due to an impact. The number of U.S. vehicles included in the recall has risen to nearly 34 million, but the count continues, and it may take a couple more weeks before automakers have a complete list of the makes, models, and the model- years of all vehicles that have the defective air bags.

For more information on the recall read the full article from the Detroit Free Press here: http://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/2015/05/19/nhtsa-takata-expands-airbag-recall/27587143/
